The $64,000 Question about God

By Stan Guthrie

2nd comingWith his customary directness, Rosenberg asked me a question that he asked most of his Christian guests when a religious topic was at hand: “Do you think I’m going to hell?” Talk about being put on the spot!

I replied something like, “Well, if C. S. Lewis is right that the doors of hell are locked on the inside, and if heaven is about worshiping Jesus as Lord and God, would you even want to go to heaven?” The question, I believe, is not whether I think Jews are going to hell. It is whether Jews want to go to heaven if believing in Jesus is the price of admission.
